We’d love to see you all there and greatly appreciate your understanding and commitment to supporting this bike ride and the wonderful community behind it. 

If you are unable to make the 2021 event and would prefer to refund your ticket, please give our rider services team a on 1800 639 634 before Friday 17 April. Thanks for your patience and understanding during these challenging times.
